Scottish Premier League Planning A 'Radical Overhaul' Of League Structure
Published November 19, 2012
MCCOIST ASKS SFA FOR HELP: In Glasgow, Richard Wilson reported SFL Rangers Manager Ally McCoist believes that the SFA should "step into the debate about league reconstruction and take control of the process." The SPL and SFL have drawn up restructure plans, but it is "unlikely the two organisations will come to an agreement." McCoist, however, insists that "it is the governing body's role to intervene." McCoist: "Contrary to what a lot of people might think, outwith our situation I would have been happy for reconstruction," McCoist said, "I looked at the SFL proposals -- 16, 10 and 16 -- and I don't have a problem with that" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 11/18).
NATIONAL TEAM COACHING SEARCH: Also in Glasgow, Waddell wrote in a separate piece that Scotland U-21 coach Billy Stark "dumped the ball" in SFA CEO Stewart Regan’s court over his case for the Scotland job. Stark, also the interim manager of Scotland's senior team, "insists he won’t formally apply for the job," and will leave it up to those in charge whether his name makes the shortlist. Stark: "I am happy to proceed on the basis that I’m in interim charge at the moment. There’s not another game until February, so I don’t know what the thinking is." Privately, Stark is "understood to be keen on the step up" from his current job (DAILY RECORD, 11/18).
